Eagle Eye Editing

Picture of a hand with a pencil writing on lined paperHere at turkishenglish.com, we believe in the three E's -- Excellence, Excellence and Excellence again! Maybe that is why so many institutions, such as Turkcell, Finansbank, Sony and journals like Turkish Policy Quarterly have chosen to take advantage of our professional proofreading services. Our proofreaders have advanced degrees in linguistics and years of experience writing polished texts that communicate effectively. 

With English being the international language of business, the second language of more countries than any other, and the language for trade, industry, music, entertainment, sports and the Internet, it is no wonder that English proofreaders are so sought after. The demands of competition in the communication age require the utmost attention to detail. Language mistakes that result in bad copy, sloppy contracts, awkwardly phrased product manuals or second-rate unprofessional websites can and do tarnish a company's image.
